amigurumi batman




Hey loves!

Inspired by my last big project which was the Joker I've made Batman!
He was also highly requested on my YouTube channel so I hope to make some people happy with this pattern!

He is entirely made with light weight yarn in the colors black, gray, beige and yellow. Crocheted with a hook size 3.5 and I've used fiberfill to stuff him! The eyes and logo are made with felt in the colors white, black and yellow.

The pattern is available on my ravelry shop for € 4.50.

amigurumi baby monster



So here is the last project I've been working on! This baby monster was a spontaneous project and I didn't wright anything down because I started making him to relax. I'm really stressed out lately and I needed this.

I used this super bulky weight ombre colored yarn from Loops & Threads which you can buy from Michales! I got mine from my friend Zee who lives in America! (thank you so much sweetie!)
I brushed the hair with a hairbrush to get them fuzzy which looks so adorable! Especially on the top of his head!
I would love to hear about your opinions!


Love, YarnYard

The Joker

Say hello to the new YarnYard member!
after a week of procrastinating I have finally finished making him!


my life has been so hectic and I have been so busy lately that I didn't really have time to work on him and the times that I had free I wanted to spend resting and do completely NOTHING!!


Today I took my hook and yarn and decided that I HAD to crochet until he's ready and after a few minutes he was done!

For this one I created a completely new pattern and as you can see he came out pretty large! I am happy about it even though I prefer working on smaller projects because they don't took so much time!

Let me know what you think about him, if you like him or not!
I would love to get some feedback!

Love, Eden! xo
